India's Khanna named among three ITF vice presidents

LONDON (Reuters) - India’s Anil Khanna was named one of three vice presidents of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) on Saturday, a day after missing out to David Haggerty in a vote for the top job.

Khanna, president of the All India Tennis Association, joins Katrina Adams of the United States and Rene Stambach of Switzerland as vice presidents.

Haggerty, a recent president of the United States Tennis Association, was elected to succeed Francesco Ricci Bitti, who served as head of the ITF for 16 years, on a four-year term on Friday.

He beat Khanna to the role on a second ballot by 200 votes to 192.
